I bought my zafu and zabuton several decades ago, perhaps when consciousness about the environment and reusing our things was perhaps not so great. Neither have removable covers and are not in a size that works with the removable covers you can find online. I've been working with a zafu maker who has made me customer covers, but they messed up. He has offered to try again if I send him my zafu in the mail so he can have the benefit of fitting it there. I already sunk some money into this that that will be lost if I give up, so I am inclined to spend more money to get a cover that will work. However, I will need a zafu while he does his work. It could take over a week, so I don't feel comfortable borrowing a zafu from a vihara.
So, can anyone recommend a zafu and one with a removable cover convenient for washing? I like firm and high zafus. Please only recommend a zafu you have personal experience ( I can Google on my own, thanks ).
A well made zafu and zabuton can lost a long time. Decades. If you buy either, make sure they have removable covers convenient for laundering to keep them looking as good as they function as the years go on. Getting new covers after the fact does not work well as there are no standard sizes.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.
